How can I remove scuff marks from my car’s trim?

I let my brother borrow my car while I was away, and when I got back, I noticed all these scuff marks on my car’s door trims! I’ve tried wiping them off, but it hasn’t worked. How can I remove the scuff marks from my trim?

Finding scuff marks or scratches on your door can be super annoying, especially if you didn’t put them there! Luckily, they’re very easy to get rid of with the right tool—to remove scuff marks from your car’s trim, you’ll want to buy a microcell sponge.
These sponges are also known as a magic sponge or a magic eraser. They’re famous for their ability to remove seemingly uncleanable marks, so in all likelihood, your scuff marks won’t stand a chance! Here’s what to do:
  • Dampen the magic sponge with either water or trim cleaner.
  • Rub the sponge over the scuff marks. The sponge’s unique structure and materials make it able to get into those grooves and remove the marks.
  • Wipe a clean, damp cloth over the area to remove any remaining residue after the marks are gone—and voilà, totally clean!
